A little more rich text formatting, please
The product is progressing well, but it’s remarkable to me that there isn’t a little more rich text formatting capability like simple bulleted or numbered lists. That would give email composition some of the features of typical desktop applications, which would be helpful for those of us trying to use the iPad as a computer.
“ A little more”?? Correction... how about any or some. It be nice to have more than cut and paste. Bullets and basic items is lacking.
It’s also strange that the app completely changes the fonts and settings from an email, in drafts, that was originally created on the desktop version. The spacing, fonts, bullets and everything look different when emailed.
The iPad version of Outlook should support right click when using a mouse. It also should provide support for text colors.
Shocking that Outlook, the go-to business email program, cannot do rich text formatting on its phone app.
Apple mail now allows you to format text by changing fonts, colour, adding bullet lists etc. The text formatting within Outlook is too constrained for professional use.

- It would be amazing to have a toolbar when formulating emails similar to that of basic word edit functions (font, size, bullet points, tables, bold, underling, italics etc.)
- this would be a great feature to have for signatures also. Plain text business signatures look highly unprofessional and it is super frustrating to have to edit this before I send each email using keyboard short cuts...

True, a very wanted feature. Please implement a similar function like in apple mail default app.
Really needed. Text formatting in Apple Mail app is way better.
The Outlook app should have sending an email as plain-text format because a lot of people want to reduce the file size of email.
iOS isnt MS’s live bug. OS needs to evolve. too much android in an apple makes for a ******* soggy *** slow spinning top. integration, yes please! i agree! dump ur non-resonated thoughts in a box for others to share, (not the ******* locked vault it hold zero treasure once u waste 8 hours making it safe. my kid isn’t surpassing me, an urs won’t either if u keep feeding the brains the little zombie brats (of which i adore of course) but fr, no matter the age, parents an teachers an mentors including peers, alll of we person(s) gobble up each other’s formulas, code and Quantum theory before anyone gets a chance to let it resonate in intellectual property mind space. gotta keep up, an then some, do not lower your vibration over bragging rights. we are soon all to be one consciousness bouncing fast as **** in perfect pitch an i know i do not want to be the density that pulls any mf down.

The ability to add numbered/bulleted lists, adjust indentations, etc. is critical.

I would like to be able to change the text format while writting emails. On my new samsung tablet, it is impossible to do so and text changes size automatically... Really frustrating when trying to send important business emails
Right now our emails look very unprofessional when sent via mobile due to the terrible default font. It’s also much more obvious that it’s sent via mobile than desktop. Please add a feature to change the default font or just make it something more visibly acceptable like Calibri.

Surely it's not too much to be able to format text e.g. make it bold. This is such a simple, but important feature.
This’ll make group conversations less of a pain
This is a really important feature to have. My company uses iPads exclusively, which means that I don’t have any ‘desktop’ apps, and that all of my emails generate from my iPad. Without meaningful text editing abilities, all of my emails look very bland and cheap.
Please can I have text formatting (bold / italics / underline) and the ability to select different fonts (I cringe when I see a phone-typed email on a desktop machine and realise it’s in Times New Roman!)
Auto-bullets are good though, thanks for that one.

Bold, italic, bulleted and numbered lists
When I copy and paste from the internet into a message, I would like Outlook to keep the formatting.
The native iOS mail app keeps the formatting.
I look forward to when Outlook has this capability too.

Is Microsoft really taking comments here into account??? So boring...
I see I can bold (control key b) and ital (control key i)
